I thought this might be a fun exercise to show who you'll be watching for most at the Combine. I'm curious how much overlap there might be in the players we're all most excited about.
List the top three positions of need for the Vikes (in your opinion), and three guys at each position that you'll be focusing on at the Combine that you think would look great in Purple.
Round out your top 10 with a Wildcard -- any player, any position.
(I've included their Combine #'s, more for my own sake, but in case you want to do the same you can find them here.)
Quinton Patton WO25 -- Robert Woods WO39 -- Aaron Dobson WO08
I like what these guys bring to the table in the receiving game (which is conveniently what we currently lack in our WRs) and they fit the mold of what we value in our players. I really want to see how these guys stack up against the 'top' receivers who are getting more love from draftniks.
Arthur Brown LB05 -- Khaseem Greene LB08 -- Gerald Hodges LB10
Leaning toward the guys with coverage ability. Curious what Mayock and the bunch have to say about them -- 3-down potential, Will vs Mike, etc.
Sharrif Floyd DL11 -- Johnathan Hankins DL16 -- Brandon Williams DL48
I know we have zero shot at Floyd, but I'm excited to watch him nonetheless. Looking forward to seeing how Big John does in the drills. BWilliams is rising and might be a guy to target in the mid rds if we don't go DT early.
CB Leon McFadden DB27
Been following this kid since last year -- was pumped to see him in the Senior Bowl (he impressed during practice), but an injury mid-week sidelined him for the game. Somewhat under-the-radar... an impressive Combine will likely change that.
So, who you got??
